3) Call for Responsible "E-Waste Management Campaign" at AIT

AIT underscores the importance of sustainable e-waste management, given its environmental repercussions. Incorrect disposal of electronics poses pollution and health hazards. When e-waste ends up in landfills, it can release hazardous substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants into the soil, water, and air, causing pollution and harming ecosystems and human health. E waste also contains various valuable and precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium, copper, and rare earth elements. Recycling metals from e-waste curbs mining, conserves resources, and fosters a sustainable society. 

In light of this, as committed by the AIT Campus Sustainability Committee chaired by "Prof. Kazuo Yamamoto, President of AIT'', Office of Sustainable Campus(OSC) officially announces the launch of "E-Waste Management Campaign" encouraging all schools, offices, and residences within the AIT community to take proactive steps in identifying any unused or obsolete electronic devices that may be lying around in your schools, office buildings and at your AIT residence. These could include old computers, printers, mobile phones, keyboards, fax machines, power banks and other electronic equipment that are no longer in use.

Once identified, kindly notify the OSC by emailing director-osc@ait.ac.thdetailing the types and quantities of e-waste available for disposalOSC will organize the collection of e-waste from various locations across the campus as necessary. Additionally, we also encourage the AIT community to identify and report any unused or broken furniture in schools and offices to help optimize building space effectively.

We kindly request the secretaries of schools and offices to identify e-waste and old furniture and report to OSC by April 30, 2024. All collected e-waste will be sent to a professional recycling company specialized in safe and environmentally friendly disposal and recycling of electronic devices, ensuring responsible handling and minimal environmental impact.

Your cooperation in this initiative is highly valued as it contributes to our collective endeavor to promote sustainability and reduce our environmental footprint at AIT. Together, we can create a more sustainable campus environment for future generations.

Thank you for your attention and support.

Remark: The collected E-waste or furniture if recorded as AIT inventory will be coordinated with OPIA for proper procedure to write it off.
